Kim Chiu responded to rumors that she was going to be booted out of ABS-CBN’s noontime variety show It’s Showtime, saying it was fake news.

On the “Madlang Pi-poll” segment of It’s Showtime on Friday, September 3, Kim and the other judges were asked about fake news items that have been written about them.

Tatanggalin daw ako dito (I would be removed from this show),” Kim said, laughing. “Araw-araw kasi yun eh, ang sakit din sa ulo (I hear it every day, it gives me a headache).”

Host Vice Ganda quipped that a lot of people believe it and even get angry at the show because of it.
